Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang: Arsenal striker sports Black Panther mask after scoring in Europa League match against Rennes

Arsenal are through to the quarter-finals of the Europa League after beating French side Rennes 3-0 at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners won the tie 4-3 on aggregate thanks to two goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Ainsley Maitland-Niles’ header.

Arsenal produced a great comeback victory over Rennes

The French side won the first leg 3-1 but Arsenal made a blistering start and flipped the last-16 tie in their favour with two quick goals.

And Aubameyang’s goal in the 72nd minute sealed Arsenal’s win but the celebration was just as memorable as the strike was significant.

The striker claimed that he had a special celebration lined up for when he scored against Manchester United at the weekend but there was a mix-up in the planning of it.

However, the Arsenal faithful were not to be disappointed this time as Aubameyang wore a mask dedicated to the 2018 Hollywood movie Black Panther.

He went behind the goal to pick up a bag containing the mask and slipped it on while his team-mates congratulated him.

Below you can see some of the best shots of Aubameyang’s celebration.

This is not the first creative celebration the Gabon international has done, previously donning a Batman mask to celebrate a goal for Borussia Dortmund against Schalke in 2015.

Gooners will be hoping to see the mask on many more occasions!
